The Laminate Trend

With the rise of other wood-looking options, like vinyl tiles, some homeowners are starting to ask: “Is Laminate Flooring going to be the trend for 2020?” So, what does this mean… is laminate flooring loosing out?

This advantage means, laminate flooring technology is having tremendous advancements, allowing floor coverings local in Rotherham to assemble the best laminate flooring around that looks like the real thing.

In fact, some estate agents are calling this flooring option one of the top styles for an increasingly home value in Rotherham and South Yorkshire alone, with solid hardwood and vinyl coming second and third respectively. Homeowners are finding this to be the most affordable way to achieve their dream look.

Time Travel

We know we can’t change the past, but why would you? Back in the 1980’s when laminate first gained popularity with First-Time buyers looking to get the American homeowner look – the flooring looked cheap and unrealistic, but without that mishap, we wouldn’t have the look that we have today!

The flooring option is going stronger and popular than ever, including the realistic looks and mimicking the current flooring trends in solid hardwood. New technology allows us to replicate hand-scraped wood looks and make them affordable, and easily maintained for homeowners.
